PORT ANGELES — School district officials will host a symbolic groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday marking the beginning of the Jefferson Elementary School renovation project.
The ceremony is set for 8:30 a.m. at Jefferson Elementary School, 218 E. 12th St., Principal Ron Spanjer said.
Jefferson Elementary alumni will raise the flag and former principal Mert Thorton will attend the ceremony, Spanjer added.
Students are expected to sing and talk about their experiences at the school.
Most of the school will be demolished during the summer. However, the oldest part of the school — built in 1922 — will be renovated. A series of school additions will be replaced by a new building.Details are in today’s Peninsula Daily News, on sale in Clallam and Jefferson counties.
